          Casting for Recovery (CFR) was founded in 1996 on the principles that the natural world is a healing force and that cancer survivors deserve one weekend — free of charge and free of the stresses from medical treatment, home, or workplace — to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings within an intimate, safe, and nurturing structure. The program and weekend retreats that are held annually around the United States, and here in Maine, provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly fishing. Just as importantly, the retreats offer an opportunity to meet new friends, network, exchange information, and have fun. Fly Fishing In Maine (FFIM) hosts a day every year on the first Saturday in June for "Alumni" of the CFR retreat weekend as a way to keep CFR participants involved in the sport of fly fishing, give them an extra opportunity to fish with knowledgable volunteer guides, and also a chance to reconnect with fellow breast cancer survivors. The one day fly fishing camp takes place in and around the Rangeley, Maine area. It is made possible by a dedicated group of volunteer fly fisherman and guides, the Rangeley Region Guides' & Sportsmen's Association that very generously donates the use of the association's clubhouse for the day, and a delicious dinner that the guides association puts on each year after a fun filled day of fly fishing. Everything for the day is 100% free for the participants and all made possible each year by volunteers and donations.

            What do a Grammy Award-winning music producer, a 16-year-old high school film student, and a nationally known singer with a soaring voice have in common? All three have united to donate their talents and energy to create an inspiring 4-min. public service video that will help raise funds for a premier quality of life national breast cancer survivorship program, Casting for Recovery. Los Angeles-based music producer Jeff Bova enthusiastically contributed to the Casting for Recovery video by producing the soundtrack song "If I Were Brave" written by Jana Stanfield, performed by the Four Bitchin' Babes and featuring vocalist Megon McDonough. Bova is a Grammy Award-winning keyboardist, composer, arranger, and record producer for such mainstream artists as Celine Dion, Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, and Herbie Hancock, among many others. In addition to his top-level music contribution to the production of their video, CFR also engaged its local community by using the budding talents of a young film student at an area high school, Burr and Burton Academy in Manchester, Vermont. Casting for Recovery is a leading quality of life organization that provides opportunities for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather in beautiful, natural settings at retreats that incorporate counseling, educational services, and the therapeutic sport of fly fishing to promote physical and mental healing. One recent participant said, "Fly fishing is a metaphor for how we will live our lives after breast cancer: stay focused and aware of what surrounds us, move slowly and with grace, and be fully present in what we are doing." Since 1996, CFR has served over 5,000 breast cancer survivors, with the help of over 1,500 volunteers. In 2012, 44 retreats are scheduled across the United States, serving women in 33 states. Casting for Recovery retreat programs are offered at no cost to the participants. Numerous medical and psychosocial professionals and institutions consider Casting for Recovery one of the leading programs providing support for women with breast cancer. To make a donation, click here: https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=6a3e3a. Casting for Recovery is supported by generous donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations. Its premier national sponsor is The Hartford and other national sponsors include L.L.Bean, Under Armour®, SmartWool, and Sisters on the Fly. Casting for Recovery is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. For more information about the Casting for Recovery program, please call: 802-362-9181 or visit www.castingforrecovery.org.
